Composite Restorations & Bonding

These tooth-colored filling materials have many uses. They are widely used instead of amalgam (silver) fillings to repair small to medium areas of decay or replace old, defective fillings. Multiple shades & translucencies allow these restorations to blend in imperceptibly. Bonded tooth-colored fillings are also used to repair chipped, broken or discolored teeth. In addition, bonded composite restorations are used to close spaces or gaps between teeth & to protect sensitive, exposed dentin or root surfaces caused by gum recession.
